Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was asked Thursday to update the condition of tight end Matt Spaeth, who reportedly injured a foot Wednesday during drills.
“He\’s being evaluated in Pittsburgh as we speak, along with a couple of other guys,” said Tomlin. “So I should have that information a little later on this afternoon.”
Tomlin had said after the Wednesday practice that he thought Spaeth might have gotten stepped on during the tight ends versus linebackers drill. Following him being carted off, Spaeth was later seen by Bob Labriola with ice on his foot.
While Tomlin didn\’t say it specifically, he did say that all healthy players will suit up for the Saturday night preseason game against the New York Giants. I doubt Spaeth will be one of those players.
With Spaeth likely down, the Steelers will get a good look at several young tight ends on the bottom of the depth chart.
